CSN Review

Ok everyone it is that time, remember I told you I was going to do a review for CSN stores. Well the product I chose was the..........
Rachael Ray Hard-Anodized 5.5-Quart Covered Casserole in Orange

This casserole is designed to perform flawlessly on the stovetop or in the oven. It features a large cooking surface to brown or sear meats with ample room to add additional ingredients to complete a one-dish meal that may be finished on the stovetop or in the oven. The casserole's lid fits snugly to lock in moisture and flavors, making this pan perfect for the long, slow braising of a tender stew or pot roast.


Features:

•Professional hard-anodized aluminum material provides even heating throughout the pan

•Exceptional strength and durable construction

•Comfortable contemporary silicone handles

•Durable nonstick interior releases food effortlessly and is easy to clean

•Glass Lid allows you to monitor foods
 
MY EXPERIENCE: After using this pot several times I have to say that I absolutely LOVE this pot. Everything I have cooked in it cooks great and the handles are a really nice as feature as well. I have put it to the test by using it several ways. I fixed a homemade mac and cheese in it and nothing stuck to the bottom as in other pots, I fixed things using a wire wisk and so far there are no scratches in the pot. I even cooked a roast in the oven in this pot and the pot stood up to this task. Let me also say I decided after the roast I would let this pot sit for a day to see if it would be hard to clean. Guess what it didnt even have to soak, it washed right up for me. I really like this pot and I am thinking of buying other pieces like this. I would definitely recommend this piece.
